sitting in my cozy corner,
with soft music playing on the radio,
I felt a strange sense of peace
spread all around me, and
Suddenly I heard,
the TV in the other room
All the accompanying noises, sorry,
‘sounds,’ were missing.
That’s it! I said to myself –
absence of noise is peace!
But why? Why did I call the TV sounds as ‘noise’
and the radio music – peaceful?
Point to ponder, isn’t it?
‘Noise,’ I feel, is the loud, distracting sounds,
something with which, we don’t feel involved.
Soft (radio) music, on the other hand,
rings its harmonious notes
through our nerves, unruffling them,
producing a strange soothing effect.
Sometimes the music rises up,
touching even the soul.
That, I understand, is the equation between
noise and peace!
